Intel upgrades Edison
Chipzilla has upgraded to its yet-to-launch Edison embedded computing platform in what appears to have involved going back to the drawing board.
Intel has ditched the company's flagship Quark processor for tried-and-tested Atom and dumped the tiny SD card form factor.
When Chipzilla told the world about Edison in January it was being touted as part of its renewed focus on embedded and particularly wearable computing technologies.
At the time, Intel claimed that the prototype worked ad it was ready to be a real product. Edison was to be the second appearance of the low-power Pentium-based Quark processor which had only been seen in the Galileo development board.
It had two unique features – an SD card form factor and its Quark processor. Now Intel thinks these are pointless.
The Quark chip has been shafted in favour of a 22nm Atom processor based on Silvermont. It is a better design. It will be a dual-core design running at 500MHz, but requires a separate microcontroller unit.
Using Atom does away with the SD card size of Edison and makes it 'slightly larger.'
